Default Weird noise when turning left.

Hi, i have a 1997 honda accord SE 2.2L auto. It has 212000 plus miles on it. I noticed when turning left sharply there is a clunk noise somewhere up front and you can feel it in the floor. I just got this honda yesterday for a good deal but have no idea what this noise is. He said he replaced the passenger drive axle, front ball joints, front wheel bearings, tie rods, upper control arms, brake pads, rotors, calipers, and he got an alignment.

Anti-sway bar links where bar ties to lower arm can become worn and cause this problem. New links are an easy diy job.

good luck

Agree the "end links" are #1 on the inspection/replacement list.....if they are ok, please also check the sway bar bushings...they are held in by the "U" shaped clamp, one one each side of the car.

Okay so i got it on jack stands last night and looked underneath it. The cv boots are fine, and it has new bushings from the sway bar to like the tire thing. Not sure what thats called. I couldnt see anything broken. But i did notice that the two boots for the power steering seem to be leaking. Is this normal and could this be my problem? It steers right real easy but turning left is a little hard. Another thing is when i go over a bump, the car rebounds in a wierd way and rebounds to the right and it kinda pulls me to the right too. Idk if its an aliment issue bc he said he got it aligned. Also i dont know what the anti sway bar links look like.

Going over a bump & rebounding to one side or another sounds like your shocks are uneven (compared to each other). Get a new pair of shocks. But that may or may not fix the noise.
